Fakir is one of formers of underground, clubscene in Serbia. He got interested in DISCO Music in the beginning of 1980’s and started Djing from collecting those days’ hits. The biggest influence to his work in that period had Patrick Cowley, Giorgio Moroder, as many funky performers had so: Chic, Gap Band, Shalamar… In the end of ‘80s he discovered “Detroit Wave” and Chicago House, followed by Acid-House in starting years of ‘90s. As one of pioneers of new musicwave he started to organize first of private underground parties and it was no long after, he (and DJ Z) became resident performer at two of cultish clubs in Serbia – clubs Contrast and Paradiso. In that period two of them formed a studio and it was birth of one of the first DJ organizations in Serbia – Noise Destruction. In January of 1994 Noise Destruction organized the first big music happening– TECHNO THERAPY at Ice Hall, party which many people remembered by to-that-day-unseen scene performance, LIVE act, Sound sistem and a huge number of visitors. March of 1994 is announced for showing Noise Destruction to Belgrade public at the new-opened club Industrija, and right in that period Fakir and DJ Z started performing all across the Serbia, as in neighbour-countries. Aside to DJing and studio-related work, Fakir and Z started a certain number of radio shows, as right after they started a legendary TV show dedicated to clubscene and culture – RAVE-o-LUTION on national TV. In his 20 years-lasting DJ career Fakir had opportunity to show many DJs to domestic public, which he entertained and worked with. He also was resident DJ of EXIT festival from its birth. Cooperation with EXIT organization gave him opportunity to play for 20.000 people on DJ Arena Stage, but also it gave him opportunity to make new friends among some of the most famous world DJs, such as: Daren Emerson, Sasha, Yuseef, Lottie, King Unique, Lexicon Avenue, Layo & Bushwacka, Marshall Jafferson… as to the other DJs, who he have played with all across the Serbia : Tom Blacksoul,Kevin Yost,Lorca,Luke Solomon,Tribalation,Eddie Richards,Gideon Jackson Terry Francis, Dave Mothersole, H-Foundation, Tony Thomas, Jay Tripwire. He have played at all big parties and festivals in Serbia, which means-beside of EXIT and Pleasures (warm up Hernan Cattaneo, Mathey Dekay i Paul Oakenfold )- Marlboro (with Xpress 2, Groove Armada,Joey Negro,Todd Terry,djHal) etc. Today, Fakir’s “maraton” DJ sets (sometimes up to 12 hours) became significant with deephouse, energical note of Terry Lee Brown Jr., The Timewriter etc. For sure- Fakir is today one of the most respected Serbian DJs with rich music bank, but also with enormous experience which he have delivered to many young DJs for many years.
